Empirical Study Of Institutions Romania


  • Glaser-Segura, Daniel
  • Anghel, Laurentiu-Dan


This study incorporates an institutional theory framework in which social norms affect interorganizational cooperation (IC). Empirical findings from a survey of 96 Romanian manufacturing firms support proposed hypotheses. Interorganizational trust is positively related to IC. Individualism and collectivism (indcol) exhibits a statistically significant relationship with IC. JIT/TQM presents a positive relationship and also supports the hypothesis that it serves as a superordinate goal over interorganizational trust and indcol to foster interorganizational cooperation.
